No, I’m not turning Trafcom News into a restaurant review blog. I’m hardly qualified to write about gastronomy. However, we discovered a fabulous restaurant in New York last night, a place with an interesting story and marvelous food, and I wanted to share it with you.
Colors, at 417 Lafayette Street, is said to be Manhattan's first restaurant cooperatively owned by former workers from Windows on The World at the World Trade Center. Six of us last night enjoyed the global menu at Colors – fried calamari, avocado salad, shrimp, skirt steak, salmon and pork – all served with creative combinations of veggies and sauces. Service was impeccable and the ambience was warm and inviting, as you can see from my lousy photo.
If you’re in NY, perhaps for the IABC International Conference, check out Colors and let me know what you think.
